Weekly Round-Up


Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

Good advice from Carolyn to choose carefully the people you decide to confide in about illness.

And from Connie, an invitation to cultivate more pleasure in life.
